Feyenoord 1-1 Ajax

Kasper Dolberg
Ajax teenager Kasper Dolberg (centre) has scored seven goals this season

Captain Dirk Kuyt was Feyenoord's hero with a late equaliser in the top-of-the-table De Klassieker with Ajax to keep up their unbeaten record.

Danish teenager Kasper Dolberg gave Ajax the lead with a burst into the box and chip over goalkeeper Brad Jones.

But Jones' former Liverpool team-mate Kuyt, 36, scored an 85th-minute header to keep Feyenoord five points clear of second-placed Ajax.

The draw ended Feyenoord's 100% start, which featured nine straight wins.
